Project Description

Intermediate Wheel Throwing

This class will serve as an intro to working with clay on the potter’s wheel. Beginning with cylinders, students will be guided through throwing and trimming cup and bowl forms on the wheel. Some elements of hand building, such as handles, will also be introduced. Along with building techniques, glazing and firing will also be taught or explained as appropriate according to studio rules. Studio organization and material and cleaning protocol will also be emphasized. Additionally, ceramic terms and definitions will also be taught to further understanding of the medium.
